Spooky Houses & Sweet Treats with Leah Farquharson

We love Halloween around here. There are so many fun things to do as a family around this holiday time of the year! The year we added to our holiday decor with this fun and spooky haunted house. The boys had sooo much fun putting it together one Saturday!

I love going with that distressed look for the autumn holidays. It just feels right. So the distressed couture and vintage love lines were a perfect fit!
I love, love how cheesecloth is a really simple way to add to that distressed feel of a layout. It's super easy to work with, too. I happen to buy this at Whole Foods while shopping one day, so it's unbleached - which gives it more of an aged look as well!
